On This Date in 1941...

the Japanese launched a surprise attack on the U.S. Naval Base Pearl Harbor in Hawaii, using bombers, torpedo bombers and midget submarines.  The U.S. lost 3,700 American lives that day, including 68 civilians, and sustained additional losses of nearly 170 aircraft destroyed with 160 damaged, as well as 3 ships destroyed with 16 damaged.

On December 8th, President Franklin D. Roosevelt delivered his “Infamy Speech” to American citizens, informing them of the attack, despite the fact that the US was in the midst of peace talks with Japan. With congressional approval, America entered into World War II.

On this day, we pray for those serving in the military and their families.

Volleyball Update:

The JV team played in our own Crusader Classic JV Tournament on Saturday.  They played well in pool play finishing in 2nd place and then played Pleasant Plains, the 2nd place team from the other pool.  The Lady Crusaders weren't able to pull off a win, but continued to rally to the end. It was a great day of good competition!

The Varsity team traveled to Mt. Pulaski for a very competitive tournament.  They got 2nd in their pool by beating Riverton and Eastland. They lost to St. Thomas More, 23-25, 23-25, who continued on in the Gold bracket and finished 1st in the tournament.  In the Silver Bracket, the girls lost to a very good Hartem team, but were able to beat Maroa in the final match to win in 3.  The girls did great! They also got to do a little team bonding with the "banner contest" getting 2nd overall! It was a fun weekend of play.  Congrats to Senior Veiauna H. for making All-Tournament team.

Cross Country Update:

Great work from the team this Saturday at Detweiller Park in Peoria.  It was a very warm day on a flat, open course. All of our athletes established a new PR for this season and showed great determination competing against some of the best runners from division 1A-3A schools.  Freshman Justin K. had a break out day running under the 19 minute mark for the first time as did Freshman Abigail B., breaking the 21 minute mark.  

Football Update:

It was an exciting football game Friday night for the Rocket-Crusader football team.  They traveled to Mt. Sterling to play a tough Brown County Hornets team. The Routt-LuHi football team improved to 3 wins and only one loss for the season as they left a lot of Hornets floundering on their home field during the 40-20 Rockets win.  The team is playing very confidently right now. Senior Jacob D., Junior Brendan F., and Sophomore Tommy T. all saw turf time again on Friday solidly contributing to the Rocket-Crusader’s success. They play again on THURSDAY at Jacksonville’s Illinois College against Triopia, a tough competitor coming in with a 3-1 record as well.  Get your friends together and carpool to Jacksonville to support your Rockett-Crusader football team.
